    Acer just announced the first computer based on NVIDIA's ION platform. Acer named it AspireRevo. It looks like a Nettop, except that it contains an entry-level NVIDIA GPU that is many times faster (10X, it's the same GPU found in the recent macbooks) than previous integrated solutions provided by Intel. However, Intel is still in the box, thanks to the presence of an Atom processor. We like the 4GB memory limit very much.

    Just as NVIDIA planned, the box can run 1080p videos, output 7.1 surround sound audio and is compatible with DX 10 graphics, although don't expect gaming performance. NVIDIA is now using "NVIDIA ION" is the official product line name in this segment.

    We have not seen any Atom-based solutions that were good at recording TV (yet), regardless of which GPU they are using. It is something thatís needed to create a Home Theater PC based off this. This wil lship with Vista Home Premium at launch, followed by Windows 7. NVIDIA says that it has 40 ION design-wins in many from factors. Pricing has not been released, but we expect this to cost between $350 and $450

    I've been waiting on this

    Finally an itx form factor not limited by Intel's bottom line chipset, nor a jetway made VIA board. Zoltac has made some mini-itx 775 based nVidia boards - but who the hell is Zoltac?

    VIA is set to release another chipset that can do mpeg1/2, mpeg 4 ASP/AVC, wmv, and VC-1 hardware decoding, and follows their usual low wattage design (2.3 watts). Now if only someone could make a quality board using these components.

    Once the dust settles on these products, I'll be awaiting an arm based netbook. These should have a battery life of at least a day

    Corned beef is now made to a higher standard than at any time in history.
    The electronic components of the power part adopted a lot of Rubycons.
